I think I know the answers I will get from my fellow hubbers on this topic. But what is funny is that two days of no activity from me in Hubpages has dragged my Hubscore from 79 to 74. How fair is that? I cannot go on contributing every second of every minute of every hour of every day of every week of ever month of every year in some way or the other just to keep my score intact. Can I? I might not be able to visit Hubpages for a couple of days. That should not be the reason for my score going down. Or are there other reasons to it to? Am I missing anything here?
Don't worry about that too much Siva. Hub scores continue to go up and down whether you are always active or not. Mine go down two points one day and are back up the next even when I am here every day. I have heard of others not writing a hub in months and come back to find their score has gone up so it is hard to comprehend.

Like the others said. Keep your chin up. I have been gone for awhile. I just came back. Things happen in life. You have to take care of you and your family first. Life is too short.
You are learning the ropes. The scores happen like that. They go up and down whether you contribute or not like Jodah said. Just don't pay much attention to hub scores.
Funny, right after I commented here on your forum, my score dipped 1 point. It just happened after 2 mins. ago.
I suggest you not worry about it. These changes do not reflect on the quality of your work. Your writing is still just as good as it was a few days ago.
Sometimes my average hub score goes up and my hubber score goes down at the same time!
Individual hub scores also have little meaning. My highest hub score is on a hub called "What Is Floral Tape?" It's not a bad hub and it answers the question but it's certainly not my best hub.
Yeah, that's kind of one of few things to worry about around here from what I've read in other postings. Don't sweat it.
J have not written s new hub for the last 8 months but my score changes almost daily from 78 to 82, Do not worry about hub score or your hubber score. It does not reflect your writing ability etc,, except just your ego....
Nobody really knows the "secret equation" which our hubber score comes from, and it also changes, so we're in the dark about it. It is somewhat an average of the scores of your individual hubs, so if you publish a new hub, it will lower your score temporarily because it has to come up in score as people read it.
Some of it is based on how much you interact with the community, but I also sometimes don't for weeks, and the score stays about the same. Don't worry about it, many have asked to have it abolished, since it's so arbitrary. Talk soon.
Yes you are right chateaudumer, it gives you a jolt when yo open your page and see for no rhyme or reasons your score going down. Makes you stop and think for a while as to what went wrong *(especially if you are newbie like me)
I think you are referring to Hubber score, which is your overall score. It's not unusual for Hubber score to go down a few points and then come back up. Overall Hubscores have a lot to do with Hubber score too, not so much activity on the site. Also, some activity brings the score down; like following a lot of people all at once; I don't think you're doing that, but I've seen people do it, not knowing it's adversely affecting their Hubber score.
Mostly, it is more important to focus on the quality of Hubs and their traffic.
I don't get how these scores work either but they don't necessary correlate with traffic and the quality of your writing (or I'm probably wrong). The best thing is to keep going and not worry so much and it'll all work out in the end.

I have been on Hubpages for almost 3 years now! I have never experienced such a low HubberScore of 43-45, it has always been 70+, even in my worst days. What's even worse for my current situation, it is that this dreadful experience does not seem to have an end, it has been like this for almost 2...

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their efforts in entirely wrong directionsFor instance, I've known newbie Hubbers stop...

I wrote my first hub a week ago and i wasn't sure if it would do well. I checked back two days ago and saw the hubscore increased and my overall one did as well. However, today i noticed that my overall hubscore increased, but the hub i wrote went down a few points. Could someone help me understand...

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My views are over 945,000. Boo-hoo. Hubpages doesn't love me anymore!

For a good number of weeks my hubber score has hovered around the 100 mark. Two days ago it started falling, and as I write this, it is down to 89! If this keeps up, it will be 0 in a week! No rhyme or reason to it, but it leaves me wondering why this is happening. I know...

I took a hiatus for awhile from Hub Pages! However, in the past week or so, I have added new hubs participated in forums, asked a question or two, participated with the Hub Hopper, have read some Hubs, yet my Hubber Score is lower than it was when I was doing nothing. I don't get it!
